Your own log cabin on a wooded hillside overlooking a private lake with gourmet breakfast served to your door (on weekends)! Period furnishings and modern conveniences make this an unforgettable retreat. A massive stone fireplace creates a quiet ambiance. Watch wildlife from back porch swings. Comfy bed, luxury sheets, high-speed internet, bluetooth stereo and special touches make your stay magical! On most weekends, I offer a Cooking With Bourbon AirBNB experience that you are welcome to join.

The space
Captain's Cabin is set up exclusively for guests to provide a special one-of-a-kind experience. You will enjoy the privacy of your own log cabin with full kitchen and bath that have been lovingly renovated with all the modern conveniences including Jenn-Air induction cooktop and oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher and stocked spices. Tasteful antiques appoint the cabin for a step back in time. You are surrounded in comfort from the ultra soft sheets, luxurious robes, and Sleep Number bed to the delicious hot breakfast delivered to your door. Sip wine by the fireplace, read on the private back porch or enjoy the wildlife visiting the lake from the front porch. Meticulously clean! Captain's Cabin has been featured in national magazines, including the July 2019 issue of Log Cabin Homes, April 2015 issue of Country's Best Cabins, 2015 September issue of Style Blueprint and April 2016 Home of the Week in Courier Journal.

A great place to start your Bourbon Trail adventure or visit Churchill Downs for the races. Only 17 minutes from downtown Louisville, you are surrounded by woods and wildlife. There are 8 acres of woods, a creek, a lake and a waterfall to explore. Wade in the smooth limestone creek, warm up by the firepit and roast marshmallows or use the grill to make your favorite dinner. Play golf or disc golf on the adjacent public courses.

Guest access
The private cabin is yours to enjoy. We will meet you and give you the only key. (An old-time skeleton key) You have our 8 acres and private lake to explore! Use the grill, firepit and horseshoes if you choose (at your own risk). Cabin is on a shared driveway with our home.

Other things to note
Captain's Cabin has been featured in the July 2019 issue of Log Cabin Homes, April 2015 issue of Country's Best Cabins magazine, and several other publications. Jan, your host, is a log and timberframe home architect and distributor of Hearthstone Log and Timberframe Homes. His homes have been featured in numerous national log and timber frame magazines and books. He can make your dreams of your own log home come true.

You will enjoy the wildlife that comes to visit the lake and songbirds that greet you in the morning. The neighborhood is extremely quiet with a private drive. The creek and walking trails complete a spectacular get-away.

My husband, Jan, and I lovingly renovated this authentic vintage log cabin. He is an architect specializing in designing log and timberframe homes. We enjoy the antics of Captain, our Newfoundland dog. We love the outdoors, hiking and camping. I love to cook healthy meals (vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free are no problem) and just finished a cookbook, Captain's Cabin Favorite Recipes. We love to travel and meet people from all over the world. We have made it our mission to know all there is to know about Louisville since we moved here in 2010. We have lots of restaurant and museum recommendations.
